Moles in your Yard

Moles controlWe all know moles can cause serious problems in turf, landscapes or in garden areas. Moles can destroy valuable plants: They start by creating one or two short tunnels (which are usually hard to notice), then multiple tunnels criss crossing your lawn.
The are two species of moles in Georgia: The star-nosed and eastern. The star-nosed mole is recorded to be found in the northeast corner of the state and the eastern mole found across the state. They differ in size, and color. Their favorite food is earthworms and they also look for spiders, beetles, centipedes, slugs and seeds. A mole can eat upto 50 pounds of food each year.

Mole Facts

Moles can tunnel through the ground up to 15 feet per hour. They are present all year round, and from spring to fall their tunnels are just a few inches below the surface for feeding purposes. They live a solitary life and the only time they find each is during the mating season, late winter and early spring.

Eastern moles do not hibernate and are active both day and night. They are busiest late and early in the day. When digging, moles push excess soil up vertical tunnels. This forms piles of dirt commonly called molehills.

Moles are uncontrollable eaters, they can consume 25 – 40% or more of their weight in food each day. A mole can die after 12 hours of not eating.

What to do with moles

If you’re not used to dealing with animals or if the damage caused by the moles brings you to a point of frustration, you are ready to get rid of moles.
We recommend hiring a mole control professional. The moment you see an active molehill, we suggest you initiate appropriate control actions. Once you have controlled damage, establish a system with your pest control provider to monitor for reinfestation. We use the best methods of control available.
